. so when the president says that susan rice was giving out -- talking about the most updated and the fully documented intelligence that the intelligence community had, that's not true because there were a number of analysis that had been done in the three days leading up to the talking points, which clearly showed by the intelligence community's own analysis that al qaeda-affiliated groups were directly involved. this is a total -- sham. >> sean: we need to findoud who took them out. i mean -- >> here we have the leaders in the american intelligence community saying khalid al-sayah they don't know who altered their talking points. if we can't find out who in the administration altered the talking points, how are we going to find out what the enemy's doing. >> sean: congressman heck, the realtime video. from what i understand, there were two sets of video, one from the drone above, which got there 15 minutes after it started or thereabouts. and video from the compound itself. can you describe what was on the video, sir? >> well, the video that was obtained from the unmanned ae

, therefore, not in the much talked about talking points that susan rice and others refer to publicly where there was a lot more focus on the potential for a spontaneous demonstration, the video, that kind of thing. that the piece of this puzzle that was more clearly known by the intelligence community of the involvement of terror groups was classified. in part that could be argued as a protection required in order to try to pursue them, that kind of thing. that is new information today, and it helps to show us how there might have been two tracks happening all along. the public statements that were reflecting part of what they may have known. the real question is, if they knew it was terrorism all along, was there too much suggestion that a video or demonstrations may have been involved? that's what people see very differently often based on their political point of view. >> yes, and it is based on political point of view. the fact of the matter, the information that susan rice was provided and what she indicated on "meet the press" and other programs, that would have been a part of the de

according to john mccain, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who's a likely candidate for secretary of state, she once said something wrong on the sunday shows. in the days after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, back in september, susan rice went on the sunday shows and gave the administration's intelligence agency-approved talking points, explaining what the administration thought at that time had happened in benghazi. and that, in john mccain's view, is unforgivable. >> maybe she could start out by publicly coming back on this show and saying, i was wrong. i gave the wrong information on your show some several weeks ago. that might be a beginning. >> but until then, john mccain will block her potential nomination. and anybody's nomination. no secretary of state for the united states of america until john mccain is satisfied. susan rice, for the record, did not give wrong information on the sunday shows. she described accurately what the intelligence agencies were advising her to say at that time. none of which turned out to be particularly wrong. a spokesman for the director of nat

centered on the u.n. ambassador susan rice. but her public role in controversial statements in the wake of the failed benghazi attack that left four americans dead could make potential confirmation process through the senate a rocky one. it's no secret senator john kerry, head of the senate foreign relations committee would be interested in the job, though his open senate seat would trigger another special election in massachusetts. with democrats holding a solid majority in the senate, it could be something the white house would be open to explore. >> maybe the president is willing to enter the possibility of losing a senate seat if he wants john kerry badly enough. >> treasury secretary tim geithner has also expressed his desire to return to private life. but with key tax cuts set to expire and sequestration looming his departure is likely to be delayed. >> people like secretary geithner have put a lot of energy in to the issues, related to the fiscal cliff. they are going to want to see it through. >> the same is likely through of defense secretary leon panetta who pleaded with congr
